Trivia:

  • Song Machine is a web series / song collection released on Gorillaz' YouTube channel and on various music services. Each monthly episode serves as a music video for a newly recorded Gorillaz song. The episodes are accompanied by 'Machine Bitez' where Gorillaz briefly chat together and with their collaborators.
  • Russel described the project: "Song Machine is a whole new way of doing what we do. Gorillaz breaking the mold 'cos the mold got old. World is moving faster than a supercharged particle, so we've gotta stay ready to drop. We don't even know who's stepping through the studio next. Song Machine feeds on the unknown, runs on pure chaos. So whatever the hell's coming, we're primed and ready to produce like there's no tomorrow. Y'know, just in case..."
  • Possible upcoming featured artists include: Beck, Flume, Guilty Beatz, The Horrors, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Joan As Police Woman, JPEGMAFIA, Massive Attack, Moonchild Sanelly and Sampa the Great.
  • According to Damon Albarn, there will be 10-13 episodes/songs per each season of Song Machine. By February 2020, around six episodes had already been recorded for the project. The series will continue until the band "run out of ideas", according to Damon.
  • During the making of Song Machine, Veikko's Blur Page will gather comments from the people who are involved in the project.
